Located in Southern Quebec’s rich farming area of Saint-Bernard-De-Lacolle, SURO® is Canada’s first and largest organic producer of elderberry-based products. For Dr. Jacinthe Desmarais and Sylvain Mercier, the SURO® founders it marries their love of nature, good health and great food into a mission to help everyone live better through the power of elderberry. The orchard is like no other place on earth. It has over 8,000 bushes that yield over 55,000 kg of American elderberry every year. The plants bloom in July and fruit ripens in September. The elderberries are hand-picked and immediately frozen at their flavour peak while maintaining nutritional value. Health Canada approved on-site processing ensures the highest quality production for all SURO® products.
Founded in 2004, SURO is a leading Canadian company in the natural products industry, and the first organic producer of elderberry-based products in North America. Offering locally sourced and Health Canada-approved formulas, SURO has a goal to help you on your path to great health with their chaga extracts, elderberry syrups, tinctures, supplements, and freeze dried organic elderberries.
